|Amanda Jernigan, Art Waves #137|
Amanda Jernigan's first book of poetry, Groundwork, draws fresh magic out of some of the oldest soil of literature, including the Garden of Eden and the tale of Odysseus and Penelope. Through the mask of these ancient myths she bares her own deepest truths, and she is as generous in this interview as she is in her poetry. Tune in to this episode of Art Waves to witness the dawn of a remarkable talent.
